War Fatigue Featured in New Obama Ad

 

The Obama campaign is highlighting the country’s war fatigue in its latest ad released ahead of Monday night’s debate, which will feature foreign policy.

 

The 30-second spot, called “Rebuilding,” shows soldiers coming home from war, some with crippling injuries, and tries to juxtapose the actions under the president with Romney’s positions.

“A decade of war that cost us dearly. And now, for president, a clear choice,” the ad starts. “President Obama ended the Iraq War. Mitt Romney would have left 30,000 troops there and called bringing them home ‘tragic.’”

The ad also criticizes Romney over his position on Afghanistan and bringing troops home, which Romney called Obama’s “biggest mistake.”

“It’s time to stop fighting over there and start rebuilding here,” the ad concludes, pointing to the eventual drawdown of U.S. presence in Afghanistan.

Romney campaign spokesman Dan Senor said on Monday on MSNBC's Morning Joe there was "no daylight" between Obama and Romney on the 2014 drawdown date for Afghanistan.

Moreover, the Romney campaign on Monday tried to point out the Obama administration’s foreign policy failures, criticizing the president on the Iranian nuclear program, the terrorist attack in Libya and on China.

“At the 2008 presidential debates, Candidate Obama promised to implement a foreign policy that would protect our interests and allies abroad,” Romney campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul said in a statement. “But four years later, America stands weakened around the world, with our safety threatened, our allies increasingly isolated, and hostile nations emboldened. Americans simply can’t afford another four years like the last four years. As president, Mitt Romney will deliver where President Obama has failed by crafting a foreign policy that restores America’s strength and increases our nation’s security abroad.”
